Banana Oatmeal Drops

I know lately everything I have posted is something to do with bananas, but these are really good too. This lady I used to work with made them one day and they are really good. They kind of remind me of the pumpkin cookies, but with banana instead. Hope you enjoy.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1 cup mashed ripe bananas ( 2 medium)
1 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cup flou
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped nuts or raisins (optional)
1 cup choc. chips (optional- preferred :) )

Heat oven to 35o. Mix sugar, shortening, egg, and bananas in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls. Bake about 10 minutes or until light brown.

When I had these they just had chocolate chips, no nuts or raisins. And they were delicious!
